H-Pipe Install

Sup guys, so im getting ready to install my new Lethal Performance H Pipe this weekend. My question is, would the guides for GT's apply to the 6? The only guides I see are for X Pipes and not many at that for the v6

You can follow the X-Pipe guides. It's the exact same install.

The installation will be similar for GTs and V6s. It's quite simple. Unbolt the mid pipe from the headers (2 bolts on each side for a total of 4.) Make sure to unplug your O2 sensors, you will be transferring them to the new pipe (mark which side is which so you don't get them confused.) Then unbolt the mid pipe from the over axle pipes. Installation of new hpipe is reversed. Be sure to put your O2 sensors back on before installing the hpipe to ease the installation.

Lift the front. Get like 1 foot extension AND a swivel connection. You'll have the stock midpipe off in under 5 mins.

Take some penetrating fluid to it. PB blaster works great. WD-40 will work too. If that doesn't work, try heating it up. I actually got the passenger nut off by reaching it from the engine bay.

I would suggest against that as you may dig yourself into a deeper hole. Stick with the correct size of 15mm and some patience.

go ahead and rent an O2 sensor removal tool.
It will make your life 1000000x easier
also buy some PB blaster, or WD40. If you haven't removed those bolts before, they are a real PITA to get out.

good advice here!
also, to heat them up, run your car for like 30 seconds. be careful not to burn yourself! haha

When OP said, "its just now smoother so i have no idea what to do to take it off.", I took that as saying he rounded off the nut. Hence the "im gonna try hammering in a 14mm to get it out".
That indicates to me that he may have been using a 12 point socket insteasd of a 6 point, which is what must be used on tough nuts. If this is true, I'd suggest he gets the 15mm - 6 point socket.
